Monday Made it!

Wow that week went by fast!  And so it goes when you're on vacation, right?  It's Monday, which means it's time for another Monday Made it with 4th Grade Frolics.

I found these mini chalkboards at Target in the Dollar Spot. I painted them lime green to match my classroom colors of royal blue and lime green.  I have never used chalk before (as is probably evident here) but it was fun nonetheless.

I made some cute labels for my classroom library. I decided to go with round labels this year.

I have been working hard on refurbishing a vintage school desk that I hope to be able to share next week.  I had no idea how much work it was going to be until I took the project on. It will be great when it's done but... wow! Sanding, cleaning, and painting looks a lot easier than it actually is! :)

What projects have you been working on?


  1. Hi, Julie! I just discovered your blog via Monday Made It at Fourth Grade Frolics. Great projects, and I love your classroom colors - definitely two of my favorites!

    1. Hi Linda! Thanks so much. I hope you are having a great summer. Thanks for stopping by and saying "hello"


  2. Oooh, I love vintage desks. Looking forward to seeing that project! Enjoy your week :)

    1. Thanks, Beth! It has been a challenge because my parents bought the desk for me for $2 at a yard sale and I spent hours with it throughout my childhood-playing school, etc. Over the years it has rusted but I didn't want to alter it too much because it has so much meaning for me. I've decided to use it in my classroom this school year as a "VIP" table so...we'll see.

  3. I love your library tags! I found a desk for my daughter at a yard sale - went through the same process - it's tough! It's now my "teacher" desk, which really holds my technology in the classroom. Thanks for sharing!
    Are We There Yet?

  4. Julie, the mini chalkboards turned out great! I'm really bad at using chalk so I just use the chalk markers so I can wipe it off cleanly and try again! Your library labels are adorable!

  5. Love those mini chalkboards but still haven't seen them in my Target. Looks great!
